THE BAZALGETTES or Folly and Farewell

Email this review


Quaint -- not without charm -- brittle, if you will, this very moral sampler of the virtues of following one's duty. Victorian in language and atmosphere is this story of a young girl's marriage to an olderly widower, with five children -- and a sixth, an oldest son with whom the young wife falls in love. How she follows her conscience and bids her young lover depart -- and how virtue is rewarded -- such is the skeleton on which is built an occasionally amusing, always in period picture of English country life and family. For the Diary of a Young Lady of Fashion appeal.
